Autoimmune disease occurs when the immune system of the body is unable to differentiate your body cells and tissues from a foreign body. The immune system begins to attack and destroy normal cells. There are many types of autoimmune disease, and their symptoms can vary from one another. However, there are some symptoms that can be common in many autoimmune diseases. Some of these common symptoms include Joint pain, joint swelling, fatigue, nausea, itching, swollen glands, fever, digestive problems, skin conditions (such as skin rash), sores, weight loss, numbness, trouble concentrating, swelling and redness. Other symptoms are often specific to certain autoimmune system.

There are some symptoms of autoimmune disease that may seem so similar to other diseases that you may not automatically recognize these symptoms. Still, it helps if you know some of the early symptoms so that you will get yourself checked immediately.

The most common symptom is fatigue. When you feel tired all the time, even when you know that you have not done anything, this may be a sign that you have an autoimmune disease. You may also suffer from achy muscles, low-grade fever, swelling, and so much more. You may also have some trouble concentrating, and you may sometimes feel that your hands and feet are tingling.
